Reduce Your Monthly Energy Bill With Tampa Solar Panels

Solar Panel Installation Tampa Will Marvel At

There’s a reason Florida is called the Sunshine State. With warm weather and bright days year-round, people of all ages are flocking to the luxury vacation locale with stars — or rather, the sun — in their eyes. So, you’ve got all this sunshine, why not take advantage of it? Tampa sees approximately 246 days of full sun every year; when you look into solar panel installation Tampa opens up to you. After a simple setup process, the Floridian sun goes to work powering your home.

As wonderful as sunshine is, it comes with an occasionally-unbearable partner: heat. In the height of summer, temperatures stay consistently in the low 90s: when you take into account how much money goes into cooling your home so you can tolerate such oppressive heat, the opportunity to reduce home energy bills becomes too good to pass up.

Net Metering in Florida

Most of the time, solar installations are set up on a net energy metering system. In this solution, your solar system is connected to the energy grid to deliver sustainable power. The solar system does not act independently but instead gives you a constant stream of power.

If you produce more energy from your solar system then the energy that you’re using, utility companies in Florida will purchase the power that you generate as a surplus credit. The surplus credit will allow you to bank ongoing energy savings on every utility bill.

Being connected to the electricity grid can also be a huge relief during cloudy days or during particularly stormy periods. If there hasn’t been strong sunlight in several days, you won’t have to rely on a bank of solar energy or a large battery reserve to retain power in your property. The electrical grid will be able to send you some power traditionally and you can simply use your energy credits to pay for the off days where you may not be able to rely on solar power generation.

How do solar panels work?

A solar panel can work to transform the sunlight that beams down on your property into DC electricity which is then converted using an inverter to AC electricity. This is the same type of electricity that you would receive out of your outlet from the electrical grid. The entire process of conversion happens from the solar panel to the array that you create and in a seamless method. The process is completely safe and you can enjoy using your home electricity grid in much the same way that you do attach to the grid.

How long does installation take?

The installation for solar panels in Florida often takes around 1 to 2 days. For larger homes, two days are often needed due to the size of the larger solar panels. For most residential solar panel installations however, the process can be done in a day from start to finish.

Is the process expensive?

The process of installing solar panels doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s actually becoming much more affordable with each passing year. Solar power can produce clean energy and with more people adopting this technology, it is driving and the costs for manufacturers.

It advantageous to consider solar power in the state of Florida because of tax credits as well. The federal solar tax credit reduces the cost of a solar installation considerably. This year, the tax credit could help to save you as much as 30% on the installation of your solar power system. These exemptions even apply to the cost of a solar battery.

In the year 2020 tax credits are set to drop, allowing you only 26% savings as the maximum. In 2021, the tax credit lowers to 22%. It is crucial to consider installing a solar power at your earliest convenience to maximize your savings.
